5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2011

We feel so fortunate to have found this jewel in St Simons!! This review just adds to the countless other stellar comments but felt compelled to share our experience. There is not 1 thing I could think of the Ocean Lodge could do better to enhace your stay!! Jackie, William, Bill and Ann (Teresa too!!) are such a warm and friendly staff and sincerely want your stay to be happy, relaxing and enjoyable every second of the day!! What a gorgeous place the owner has created here!!! We look forward to coming back next year (or sooner)

My husband and I recently returned from our 2 day stay at Ocean Lodge. We were greeted by the clerk, Jackie, who was very friendly and accomodating. Our room was
beautiful. It had a kitchen with white, antique glazed cabinetry, 4 stylish stools near the granite counter. There was a living room furnished with ornate, but tasteful furniture. and a large screen TV. Off the living room were double sliding doors which led to the bedroom.T he bedroom had a kingsize bed (very high). The bathroom off this bedroom also featured a sink with a vanity which was a piece of furniture. Inside the drawers there are slippers and a hairdryer. The plush robes are hanging up nearby. There is a whirpool tub and water closet in a separate room next to the sink. Oh, I failed to mention that upon entering the suite, there is a second bathroom which features a shower stall with a clear glass door. The sink in that bathroom also is contained within a piece of furniture. The toileries ,which are plentiful, are Bulgari. I cannot say enough about this place. It is truly relaxing. Because of the spacious quarters you feel right at home. The staff whom we met were very pleasnat. (Jackie, Will and Bill).

Debated between this and King & Prince for honeymoon. We had a beautiful room at King & Prince before, but the service at Ocean Lodge was impeccable. All the staff were most accommodating and gracious -- from the welcome of Jackie to the service of Jason at the bar. We enjoyed all that Ocean Cove had to offer for winter special rates -- a fabulous deal! The use of bicycles was an added bonus as we enjoyed exploring the island by walking or cycling. The inn is close to the village and lighthouse, so well located. It's too bad that it's not directly on the beach, but we did have beach views across the street in-between houses. The bed was luxurious and having use of a kitchen was another plus. His & Hers bathrooms in an inn is an amazing touch and I definitely made use of the candlelight in the whirlpool bath while sipping on the complimentary champagne -- courtesy of the staff for our honeymoon.

This was my husband and I's second trip to St Simons. We stayed at Ocean Lodge both times. Amazing is all I can say. We have traveled much and many places that are made out to be luxurious turn out to be a disappointment. Not this one! In fact, we chose St. Simons for the second time because of Ocean Lodge. We were afraid nothing else could live up to our expectations. The accomodations are fabulous....make you feel as if you've traveled across the ocean! The staff could not be any more helpful, and we had wonderful breakfast's every morning. And the room...it can't be beat. The suites are huge, with two bathrooms, living area, kitchen and separate bedroom. All the furnishings are top of the line, making you feel as if you are royalty. Would we go again? Absolutely!!! The owner also is very friendly to his guests and we looked forward to his morning chats as he passed by our table. This is one place you want to go if you want something extraordinarily romantic and luxurious.

I surprised my boyfriend with a weekend stay at Ocean's Lodge. I wanted to find something a little out of the ordinary for this little vacation. I was blown away with the pictures on the Ocean's Lodge website. I didn't realize such a jewel was right within driving distance of Jacksonville, FL. Let me say the pictures did not relay the true beauty of this place. It's an Italian mansion, seaside. Stunning! The suite was so comfortable with his and her separate bathrooms, a huge covered balcony with ocean views, granite countertops, comfortable & beautiful furniture, kitchen amenities, jacuzzi tub in my bathroom and a full shower in his. And that bed ! Oh My... that awesome bed ! The staff was so very helpful from finding my childhood home for me in Brunswick, Georgia to suggesting the Trolley Tour of the Island. Every comfort of home was right there. We chose to grab dinner each night and take it back to our suite because just being together in that cozy atmosphere was more important to us than going out. It was simply Heaven on St. Simon's Island. I cannot say anything negative about this place. I wish every friend could spend time there and experience what I have.

My husband and I booked our stay through Sniqueaway and it was a wonderful choice! When we checked in, we were taken to our suite and shown all that was available. Our third floor suite was amazing. Each suite is different and has beautiful Tuscan style art work. The suite includes two bathrooms, a kitchen, bedroom, balcony, and living room. Breakfast each morning was well prepared, great choices, and leisurely. Jackie, a staff member, was friendly, efficient, and welcoming. The owner Joe visited with us during breakfast the second morning and he was a pleasure to have time to tell us about the lodge being built. The restaurant is on the fifth floor, but it was closed during our visit. The restaurant has a full moon party once a month and we missed that by one day. The lodge is not oceanfront but on the other side of the street; howver, the suite still provides an ocean view from the balcony. I look forward to going again.

Coean Lodge is a beautiful, small resort--elaborate Mediterranean architecture and interiors (lots of art in rooms and public spaces) with an incredible bed, jacuzzi tub, comfortable living/dining/kitchen and fantastic staff. Our only criticism is of the view (view of buildings across the street) and the restaurant (over priced and cold food resulting from the kitchen being on the first floor and dining room on the 5th floor). However, the breakfast was among the best ever! Fortunately the breakfast room is off the lobby and next door to the kitchen! Restaurant on the Island are fantastic, so don't worry about dinner in the restaurant, but don't miss breakfast! We went to a great community theatre production.
